Publisher's Summary

This radio dramatization of the Hithcock classic, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture, originally aired on November 18, 1948.

Screen Guild Players was the most glamorous charity program on the airwaves. The hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for the Motion Picture Relief Fund built and maintained the Motion Picture Country House, providing housing for former film stars who were suffering from health or financial problems. Eager to be seen contributing to the cause, Hollywood's best and brightest flocked to the program. At first, it was primarily a variety show, with its first broadcast featuring Jack Benny, Joan Crawford, and Judy Garland. Later, it became an anthology show extraordinaire.

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "A Classic Condensed to 39 Minutes"

    STORY - (1948 Radio Show - Alfred Hitchcock) This is one of eight stories you will receive if you purchase Alfred Hitchcock's Radio Movie Collection. I haven't read Daphne du Maurier's classic Rebecca, but this is apparently the express version of the 14-hour book. In 29 minutes you will hear the story (performed wonderfully), plus some rather interesting cigarette commercials which are, of course, illegal today. I'm not a fan of old movies or radio shows, but I like Hitchcock and am enjoying these eight stories as breaks between other longer books.

    PERFORMANCE - Wonderful multi-voice performance by famous professional actors and actresses, with old-timie music and sound effects.

    OVERALL - (Precise rating 3.5) Recommended for all listeners, but mainly because of the awesome performance. If you like old movies and/or remember dramatized radio performances, you will enjoy this.
